I'm not even 100% sure this is from an RPG, but I think so...

Years ago, I came across an RPG in PDF form. The reason I'm not confident that's what it was is because I can't remember any of the "game" aspects. I thought the descriptions of its elder gods / cosmic horrors sounded cool, so I wrote some of them down. Now, trying to remember what I wrote...

  • There was an ancient named Zarkolep or something similar
  • Another ancient named Narcisst or similar
  • Another named something vaguely like Evalinge
  • There were several more, 6-8 ancients total
  • One described as "the half become one drinker of worlds"
  • Another had two tails
  • One was the last survivor of the destroyed universe of Denhzaz (?)
  • Another was described as the ancient most likely to destroy our universe
  • Most of them wanted to consume / drain / assimilate the universe in some fashion; one wanted to destroy it without gaining anything

With an exact quote I'm confident of and this much specific information, I can only guess that the game isn't online anymore. It was an indie / self-published game.

Does the name 'Nyarlathotep' ring a bell from that RPG? It sounds like you're describing a Lovecraft-inspired game. – doppelgreener Oct 22 '13 at 0:16
Or just Lovecraft. – SevenSidedDie Oct 22 '13 at 1:00
It was clearly Lovecraft-inspired, but I don't recall it using any Mythos names I know. – Tristan Klassen Oct 23 '13 at 23:19

Without exact spelling of words, your question is pretty difficult. There are a lot of games with elder gods seeking to destroy the universe.

Google says "Drinker of Worlds" is a demon from the Blood Storm storyline in Warhammer 40K.

The big Warhammer baddies are Tzeentch, Nurgle, Khorne and Slaanesh... Poke around in and see if that rings a bell. – mxyzplk Oct 23 '13 at 17:11
Coincidentally, I was reading that wiki a few days ago. No, nothing like what I'm looking for. – Tristan Klassen Oct 23 '13 at 23:22
